Masson will discuss the code of ethics that bird watchers must abide by to support conservation and protect the pastime. Adherence to these rules help protect birds and their natural ecosystems. Without proper precautions, human presence can be very intrusive and destructive to wildlife.
In this presentation, Masson will discuss guidelines and safeguards to avoid unintentionally disturbing or harming our feathered friends. Even experienced birders can unknowingly disturb the wildlife they aim to conserve.
